Lyrics

If thou wouldst have the dear Savior from Heaven
Walk by thy side from the morn till the even,
There is a rule that each day you must follow,
Humble thyself to walk with God.

Refrain

Humble thyself, and the Lord will draw near thee;
Humble thyself, and His presence will cheer thee;
He will not walk with the proud or the scornful;
Humble thyself to walk with God.

Just as the Lord in the world’s early ages
Walked and communed with the prophets and sages,
He will come now if you meet the conditions,
Humble thyself to walk with God.

Refrain

Just as the stream finds a bed that is lowly,
So Jesus walks with the pure and the holy;
Cast out thy pride, and in heartfelt contrition,
Humble thyself to walk with God.
